    I got iv certified through a course at our local 2 year college. sponsored by our small hospital, we took a week course and practiced and took test and were iv certified. we then went back to work had 6 iv sticks in holding in surgical and then on our way. greatest of luck.

    I see you're working in geriatrics--assume that it's an LTC faciluty. Years ago when I worked LTC our pharmacy company held an IV Certification "program" which lasted most of one afternoon. You might also check with your Board of Nursing.
